Grove Farm Museum

Sugar cane was the chief agricultural industry on Kauai for over 150 years.  Providing one of the last authentic experiences of Kauai’s sugar cane heritage, Grove Farm continues today in its arrangement and operation as it did as a developing center of a 19th century Hawaii sugar plantation.  Acquired in 1864 by George N. Wilcox, the son of missionary teachers, Grove Farm is a beautifully preserved one hundred acre homestead in the center of Lihue that includes the original plantation main house, owner’s cottage, guest cottage, old office, as well as other resident and plantation workers’ housing camp.  The ongoing active household and farm with its animals, gardens, banana patches and pastures, maintain the same cleaning and agricultural schedules and practices that were established in the 1870’s.
